Let's PLay Ball in Crisfield!!

Thought all you high school sports fans would enjoy this photo of a game played at Crisfield High school.

"Root, root, root.
Root, root, root, for both teams.
Win or lose, lose or win,
we're all the same.
Won't you take me out?
Please take me out,
to the old ball game."

I can't remember who sang that song. And I can't remember the rest of the lyrics. I heard a woman sing it on Prairie Home Companion in the 80's. I liked it because it was about the fun of the game, and not in the winning. If anyone knows who sang it, let me know. Hint: This was a take off on the original. Instead of shaming the losers, the song focuses on bringing everyone together.

Here we go.......

"Take me out to the ball game
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks
I don't care if we ever get back and we'll
Root, root, root for the home team
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two , three stirkes you're out
At the old ball game".
Prince and I go to see my beloved Atlanta Braves every chance we get. Hey, those lose alot but it's my hometeam right??
Say hello to Huey and stroke the gang for us and........

Steady On

Baseball is such a great part of summer ... I like Fogerty's song Centerfield. Don't know who sang/wrote yours here.

haha! the same song ran though my head too! Great photos Patty!

Missy said...

I like that song hahaha; I haven't watched a baseball game here and I don't know if they have some.

ROSIDAH said...

Oh, I love this song! It reminds me of an old movie starring Esther Williams. Great shot. Ball games are always so exciting. Have a great day :)

And, of course, the lady in the purple shirt behind this focused effort, is busy checking her blackberry.

Love me some baseball games now!

Patty said...

Butler and Bagman: You are so observant. And you get points for blowing the photos up. But a cell phone does not a Blackberry make. For those who don't know B&B, he is 2 people (well, 3) and we never know which one is going to come out. He is our breath of fresh around the Blogosphere.

ROSIDAH: Ball games are so much fun, even when the little ones play.

Missy: No ball games in Japan?

Nessabates: I wish I could find the rest of the lyrics to that take off on the song.

Patty said...

Reggie Girl: Not the right song. Try again.

Patty said...

Noe Noe: Maybe we could start a Blogger's Team. Oprah could sponsor us. Who wants to be on my team?

I love baseball! I also love that my youngest loves baseball!

Oz Girl said...

Amen. It should always be about the game as a whole, not just about winning. Love your photo of the catcher!
